Biography

Los Angeles, Ca (2002 - 2007)

The Westminster Abbey was formed in mid November 2002 by Christopher Mudgett. The project began as a solo project for Mudgett but later went on to become a musical duo which included Brett Nolan (son of famed songwriter Kenny Nolan). TWA began recording songs with Producer Joseph Lobato at Can-Am Studios in Los Angeles early 2003. Many of the tracks recorded at Can -Am were never released; however, there were a a few notable tracks such as “Oh No” and “Simple Man” that made it onto their debut release “Oh No, It’s An E.P!” from ISurrender Records. Mudgett is the only credited songwriter on the ep.

After touring in support of “Oh No, It’s An E.P!”, Westminster Abbey went back into the studio to began work on their first full length album. Sessions began at Track & Field Studios in Santa Monica, Ca. Although a majority of the album was tracked there, TWA completed “Under The Weather” at SoundQuest Studios in Van Nuys, Ca. In total,The Westminster spent 18 months recording their 15 song masterpiece. You can here the detail in the lush vocal and instrument layers presented on this album. Under The Weather features 15 new songs 13 of which were written and arranged by Mudgett. The album was the first and last TWA record to include a collaborative effort with the duo and also, to feature a original composition from Kenny Nolan entitled “Just People”.

Despite much indie and major label interest in the release of “Under The Weather”, The Westminster Abbey decided to release the album themselves in order to maintain the albums creative integrity. Mudgett, Nolan, and Lobato released the album via their own label “Grandiose Records”.
